The Committed Dharma Practitioners Programme

Commencing Spring, 2013

With teachers: Christina Feldman, John Peacock, Akincano M. Weber and Stephen Batchelor

The CDPP is an extended programme integrating both the study and practice of the Dhamma that is rooted in the Buddha’s teaching of the path to liberation.

The programme provides opportunity to study the texts (pariyatti), develop and cultivate our experiential understanding of the teaching (patipatti) and investigate how they apply to our meditation practice and daily life, and understand what is meant by realisation (pativedha).

It offers a number of different, yet interwoven strands within its framework – teaching, discussion, community, reflection and investigations applied in our daily lives. Students will need to have previous experience of dharma practice. This programme is an opportunity to learn and practice together with one of the intentions being to encourage participants to embed the teaching in every area of their lives.

Modules and Retreats: The modules, held in the beautiful setting of Sharpham House, will offer an in-depth exploration of the teachings of the Buddha. They will include sustained blocks of teachings and discussion, and times for questions each day. Retreats will be held at Gaia House and will have a study practice format.

You can download the course information and application below, and please  email the CDPP Administrator  if you have any queries.The course will be open for applications from September, and a limited amount of bursary support is available this year – the deadline for bursary applications is the end of October.
